KRIS Corpus Christi weekend anchor Sara Donchey joins KPRC 2 as the station's new 4pm anchor confirms KPRC 2 news director Rhonda LaVelle to mikemcguff.com.
Donchey will anchor with Keith Garvin. That means current 4pm anchor Lauren Freeman will now anchor the 5pm with Bill Balleza.
You might remember that longtime 5pm anchor Dominique Sachse left that show upon her contract renewal.
"Freeing up the 5pm newscast allows me more family and after-school time," Sachse told mikemcguff.com last April.
Previous to her two years at KRIS, Donchey worked as a reporter for KZTV Action 10 News in the same city.
Before Texas, she was a production assistant for KPIX CBS5 in San Franciso and online managing editor for the Golden Gate Xpress.
Donchey is a graduate of San Francisco State University.
